I've just received the official WP7.8 update for my Nokia Lumia 800 via Zune:



While it's largely cosmetic update (adds WP8 tile sizes and colours), the Nokia variant adds some extra camera options as well as Bluetooth file sharing.

Koodo customers who purchased the Lumia 610 should check Zune to see if their update is available yet. My Lumia 800 is from the US Microsoft Store.

It's not always possible to get the latest ROM unbranded. Just make sure you get one with the correct RM code and you're good.

I used a Mexican Telcel ROM for my 800 before today. Changed language to English and deleted all the bloatware (one of my favourite features of WP) and it was as good as unbranded.

I was about to get ready to buy the HTC 8S in the coming weeks. However, the Nexus 4 came back in stock and well, one thing led to another and you know...well... things happen, lol! I'll be happy with WP7.8 for the time being.

@Chad: I don't see a UMS option anywhere

No mass storage mode. That's WP8 only. I'm not quite sure if I prefer mass storage or Zune. Honestly, I'd like to have both options (Zune for backup, mass storage for everything else).

So apparently my phone has had this update for the last month and I've been ignoring it, lol. I did the update a few days ago. I'm liking the increase in tiles as well as being able to change their size. I still prefer my Nexus S. I can't wait to upgrade to either the S3 or the Nexus 4 :D.
